Orange amber...

Smells like watermelon candy and molasses...with a twist of fact it tastes sorta like that too...

The texture of the beer is nice when cold but it gets too hot as it warms. There is too much sugars here for me. Or something like that.

I tried to enjoy this beer but I really cain't. I paid $13 for a sixxer. That is too much for me. Even if it is free range coastal water.

This beer trys to hard to be something. And it doesn't even know what it's trying to do. This beer is like a college dropout trying to make everybody thank they is smart.

Smells wonderful and is looks gorgeous...just all mixed up inside...maybe that's why the guy died...I dunno...

I had this in 2002 and said I would never buy it again but since I have had some really really good Rogue beers lately I thought I would see if somehow my tastes had matured. Nope the flavor is still dead.

I'll pass next time.

Pours amber, slightly golden, slightly hazy, small white head.
Smells kind of sweet, notes of honey & caramel, some hops. Kind of reminds me of sweet tea.
Caramel flavor is much fuller in the taste, honey follows, then some bitterness & hopes finish it off.
Feels full but not heavy. nice carbonation, but almost too much. Goes down smooth.
Very very drinkable. Not super complex, but I always seem to forget how good it is..

Pours a light amber leaning towards yellowish.
The foamy cap was small and unimpressive and left no lacing. Had a hazy appearance. Aroma was hops and malts evenly balanced. Taste was desent with nothing special going on. Malts and hops, no real hop flavor. A smooth mouth feel but also a bit watery. Overall a desent ordinary beer that lacks.
